Where should I go next fall? / Re: Should I go?....American

Why would you say there's not a huge difference in where my life would end up? I'm pretty sure American crushes Northeastern, ranking-wise and probably has better employment opportunities.

My other options are:

Howard
Northeastern
Rutgers-Newark

I am waiting to hear about the respective financial packages.

Hey there!

Thanks for your insight and advice! I sincerely appreciate it. It seems like LSD can be a ghost town so I'm glad you took the time to reply.

I know that WCL is a top tier school (#45) according to USNWR. I also know that American gets DOGGED on a lot by people on LSD and TLS, mainly because of its cost and position in a saturated market.

But, I'm leaning in this direction because: A.) it's the best school I got into, B.) I want to live somewhere new and DC is the nation's capital (I'm from Massachusetts) and C.) DC is the most recession-proof area in the US.

I'm also interested in working in: MIDLAW (granted, it is dwindling given this economy), the PI sector or starting off with a judicial clerkship. I'm not terribly enamored with BIGLAW.

Should I go for it?

Can anybody (American students, preferably) tell me more about WCL, what its student body atmosphere is like and how it places in DC/MD/VA? And what kind of jobs graduates typically get? All insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm a Newbie and I want to get this thread back to being active. The 0Ls need guidance and advice from the older and more experienced posters. I'm not afraid to speak up.
